The Asia University of Japan is a private university located in Tokyo, Japan that offers courses in Business Administration, Economics, Law and International Relations. The university was founded in 1941 by Kozo Ota as Koa Senmon Gakko on the site of the present Asia University campus. Ota believed that education should be based on a spiritual closeness between teachers and students. It was a unique school at the time, as it accommodated all students in dormitories divided by course of study; Continental Asia, Southern Pacific Islands and Japan .It shares its name with another university located in Taiwan.

This paper investigates the role of tolerance in urban communication. In doing so, it presents a model with $$N+1$$N+1 individuals who communicate with each other. The model explains that individuals can be tolerant and obtain a valuable outcome if their communication partners are also tolerant enough to make their communication smooth. Consequently, when individuals are sufficiently differentiated and have frequent opportunities to communicate, there exist multiple equilibria in which all individuals could be either tolerant or intolerant. That is, individuals remain less tolerant as long as their communication partner’s tolerance remains at very low level. However, when their communication partners are initially tolerant enough, they can achieve a substantial outcome in communication. This phase can be interpreted as meaning that the individual has exercised intercultural competence. © 2015, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Climate policy is undergoing a process of financialisation. The development of carbon markets around the world has seen the creation of new ranges of essentially financial products, the trading of which is purported to be an effective means to reduce carbon emissions. There are, however, good reasons to doubt the effectiveness of carbon markets in reducing carbon emissions. I highlight the distance between carbon traders and the 'real' environment, and the complexity of contemporary financial markets and products as particular problems. I conclude by considering two approaches to reform: through tighter regulation of carbon markets; and through changing the political framework in which markets operate. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Integral representations for the electromagnetic field and the electron one are presented in the manifestly covariant operator formalism of quantum gravity. These representations contain not only the gravitational interaction but also the electromagnetic one, and satisfy the matter field equations. Some properties of them are investigated. © The Author(s) 2014.

The main purpose of group-buying is reducing the original price of product, in essence. In recent years, the individual, families or friends buy the same products through group-buying on Internet for to increase the bargaining power and achieving lower price. The company also offers discounts to buyers in order achieving sales goals which are attract customers or distributors to buy in advance or bulkbuying. The objective of this study was to investigate the factors that influencing group-buying of swimming tickets for consumers in Taiwan central. The results showed that the Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) is 0.907 and total variance explained is 65.407%, affect factors are convenience factor, price sensitive factor and utility factor by factor analysis technique by SPSS 11.0 software.

A tensorial version of the gravitational Pauli-Jordan D function is introduced in the manifestly covariant canonical formalism of quantum gravity. This function is defined as a bilocal operator that relates to the 4D commutation relation between an abelian gauge field and itself. Some properties of this function and the gravitational Pauli-Jordan D function are investigated. © The Author(s) 2013.
